Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
Last year, Annabel was “the girl who has everything” — at least that’s the part she played in the television commercial for Kopf’s Department Store.
This year, she’s the girl who has nothing: no best friend because mean-but-exciting Sophie dropped her, no peace at home since her older sister became anorexic, and no one to sit with at lunch. Until she meets Owen Armstrong.
Tall, dark, and music-obsessed, Owen is a reformed bad boy with a commitment to truth-telling. With Owen’s help, maybe Annabel can face what happened the night she and Sophie stopped being friends.
I need all of Sarah Dessen’s books. Like right now. Before spring break. 🙂
Written for young adults yet oldies like me enjoy them, too.
She’s an amazing author with a knack for writing about the young years.
Mesmerizing. Honest. Sometimes painful. Real.
Yep, loved it!
